JPMorgan’s CFO Jennifer Piepszak and CEO Jamie Dimon were recently a part of the earnings call of the company’s Chase’s Q4 2020.
They finally expressed their approval of the OCC’s recent agreement. The receptive agreement allows banks to use the stablecoin for payment purposes. They also weighed on whether or not the respective approval will influence the JPM Coin’s development.
The details of Chase’s Q4 2020 earnings call
There was a question-answer section held within the respective call. During it, Portales Partners analyst Charles Peabody put forward some critical questions. One of them was about the OCC’s approval for banks to access and employ public blockchain networks for payment.
JPM CFO Jennifer Piepszak answered the respective question by stating that the audience allows a provision of stability on a public blockchain. This further implies that it will not impact the JPM Coin. The coin, as claimed by Jennifer, can be regarded as the tokenization of their customer deposits.
However, she clarified that the possibility of a JPM-backed stablecoin would remain intact if the customers showed enough interest. Her statement remarked that it was very early to take a call on the respective context.
Though the company plans to assess the use cases along with the customers’ demand, it still is a far fetched idea for them.
JPM CEO Jamie Dimon took forward the conversation by mentioning that the bank is already sharing data with other banks through blockchain. He further proclaimed that they are at the forefront of it, which is a significant benefit.
The history of JPM Coin
Jennifer also detailed the JPM Coin scheme as tokenizing deposits to make the payment facility convenient for the customers.
Moreover, Jamie seemed to suggest that the settlement of crypto payments won’t greatly affect the operations of JPM. Thus, it can be noted that Jamie might be underestimating crypto’s potential impact on the payments ecosystem.
It is interesting to note that Jamie mentioned one of the Fintech giants, Paypal as a payments competitor. Meanwhile, the latter recently confirmed that they would be offering crypto payments from 2021.
